    I just LOVE these quirky, out of the ordinary, tourist attractions. The dodo roundabout is located along Avenue Petite Marie in Flic en Flac. We visited twice during our 28-day vacation in Mauritius. What you should do is park your car just off the roundabout and then walk for 30 seconds to the green fence. You will have the chance to take some great photo's of the national bird of Mauritius for a unique tourist adventure. Also, make sure you search for the geocache that is located at the roundabout -- another fun thing to do while there.

    Great visit to watch the dolphins swimby. Tried to swim with the dolphins but the only problem is that when you are told to jump in the sea by the time you do that the dolphins would have gone and you won't get to see them. Water is not very clear at the stage where you get to see the dolphins on the speedboat!
    Bring your own food because you are not served breakfast and lunch is late until you reach another island. The only thing provided to you after repeatedly asking for food would be a small slice of bread. The speedboat wouldn't leave on time even after being told to come at 8 in the morning the boat left an hour later.
    Big problem for vegetarians because all food served would be non vegetarian.
    Please be informed prior to avoid problems later

    We had an amazing experience with Whale Dream. I contacted Captain Vic through the official site and he was very quick to respond. Communication was great and Captain Vic was very flexible in finding a time that worked as we were leaving in a few days.

    The boat ride out to the whales was a bit bumpy because of the choppy water (that's just the sea, can't be helped) but we really enjoyed having a Rolling stones soundtrack on the trip out. The experience of seeing the whales was just amazing. We got a great view and the whole thing felt very respectful of these beautiful creatures. Captain Vic spoke to us about his experiences and gave us loads of interesting information.

    Thank you Captain Vic and Ludovic for the experience!

    If you are looking for a travel agent / tour operator , look no further than Sam's Tours (Turquoise Voyages )
    Our group of 4 had the most amazing 5 day tour of the island and by the end, there was not a thing that we had not covered !
    From initial and continued contact with Sagar - the owner to the planning and execution of the entire itinerary - it was not only faultless but perfection itself
    Our trip included airport transfers as well as daily tours .
    Our guide was Raju - who was one of the best guides that you could ever hope for . He was kind , and extremely knowledgably showed us every sight and answered every question with patience and humor
    All in all , the tour far exceeded our expectations and was definitely one of the best experiences we have had during our worldwide travels.
    Sam tours are true professionals in every way and we would recommend them to everyone whole heartedly

    I dived with Sun Divers in March 2022.
    Gerard, JP and John were great guides and all the staff were very friendly and helpful.
    They supplied nitrox and aluminium cylinders and collected me from my hotel each morning.
    An enjoyable few weeks of diving.
    Thanks Sun Divers.

    Great tour! Very recommend also for children. We went with our three children, 1, 5 and 6 years old... Every one of us enjoyed the day and the beautiful places. Can't loose the lighthouse island. Very good lunch.

    It has been more than 2 years since me and my Daughter's previous dives and went out for the 'try dive'.
    I chose to dive with Ticabo mainly for two reasons.
    Firstly, the price was very competitive compared to some other dive companies in the area.
    Secondly, the staff were absolutely fantastic. They all spoke English really well and made you feel very welcome.

    Neelam took care of our booking and kept in touch with us through WhatsApp until our dive day. Such a lovely lady.
    Patrick (the bossman) explained what to expect in our try dive and was so welcoming.

    On the day of the dive we had Ashleigh as our instructor. He was brilliant! So friendly and polite. He helped us get into our wetsuit and get our equipment together (all equipment was in good order) and then led us to the lagoon area to show us all the basics we would need for the dive. This lasted maybe 20-30 minutes, going through hand signals, explaining the pieces of equipment, safety manoeuvres, how to use the flippers correctly, how to clear our masks if they filled with water, etc and also explaining what to expect from the dive area we were visiting (the aquarium). He took his time with all of this, explaining clearly and making sure we were both OK and understood.

    Once we were all aboard the boat, Ryan (the skipper) took us out to the dive area and in we went. Backrolling into the ocean.
    On our descent, I had trouble at around 5 meters with equalising one of my ears. I gave both Ashleigh and Patrick the hand signal to say I was having trouble and wanted to go back up because I felt a bit of pain in my ear, but they told me to stay where I was and keep trying. My right ear eventually released and I felt so much better.

    The dive was brilliant. We saw so many fish and Ashleigh was very vigilant, but also allowed us our freedom to go where we wanted without straying too far away from him. He was constantly checking we were OK and pointing for us to follow his direction where he would lead us to see some brilliant sights.
    In total we were in the water for 38 minutes and went to a depth of 12 meters, which is the maximum for a try dive.

    I honestly cannot fault these guys and highly recommend them.
    Brilliant staff. Brilliant service.
    Thank you so much Neelam, Patrick and Ashleigh.

    This was without doubt a great day! The crew were amazing and caterered to our every whim. If you want a 5* meal on the beach then maybe not for you but if you love roughing it with home made cocktails and a real camping feel to you lunch then this is great. The dolphin experience was life changing for my wife who swam incredibly close to them, with others in the group lucky enough to touch them. Me being a bon swimmer, I still got a lot out of the experience and one of the guides took my gopro and Swam underwater and got so.e very close up video if the dolphins for me which was wonderful.

    There was plenty of equipment on board and we never felt unsafe. I even did some snorkeling and saw some beautiful sights just under the surface of the water.

    At one point on the way back we were delayed due to a spot check from the coast guard. Though worrying at first we soon saw the funny side as they had all the relevant documentation to hand to prove they were a legitimate company giving a great service which is always good to see as you never know who is operating outside of regulation.

    100%recommend and for the price it was amazing value.

    I've had such a great experience diving with aishley from abyss!
    It was my first dive ever, I was alone, and I'd made the mistake to look up all the things that can go wrong when you dive just before I arrived. So I was a little bit nervous.
    These guys had a very friendly atmosphere, and I was explained everything about the dive into details and felt super safe and prepared.
    And then I saw some absolutely amazing things under water which I did not dare to believe existed!!
    If I had more time I'd definitely go again and make a course here.
    Definitely worth all your money, go go go!

    It is the ONE place you’ll want to come back again and again. There is no other spa that can deliver such a level of quality anywhere around.
    I had 2 magical experiences under the hands of gifted Ryan. One for a well mastered Swedish massage after a hike. Another one for a complete treatment including chakra balancing.
    I can’t describe the feeling of wholesomeness that I carried with me when getting out of there, or maybe by saying that I was immediately overwhelmed by tears of joy on the walk back on the beach.
    I tried other places in Flic en Flac and guarantee you that nothing compares to their services and REAL respect of the length of treatment booked. Both my partner and I appreciated their guidance, attention to details, beautiful vibrations and kindness.
    I wish them all the success they deserve while carrying what is obviously their passion. ❤️

    While staying at Flic en Flac I went diving with this small and professional local dive shop. Their equipment is in great shape (not something I can say about all the other dive shops on the island). Sea Urchin is run by resolute German proprietor Katharina. Her firm-hand/ take-no-BS-from-anybody attitude may come across a tad harsh at times. However, after diving with other outfits and witnessing their instructors' laissez- faire approach even in cases where unexperienced divers break coral with the fins because all the focus on is their stupid camera, I wish there were a whole lot more Katharinas out there. I would definitely dive with Sea Urchin again.

    We came across this company via booking.com when we were arranging a transfer from the airport to our hotel. We were greeted at the airport by Nizam, who was very personable, friendly and informative on our arrival. We went out on multiple excursions with him during our 2 week stay in Mauritius and he had a lot of knowledge to share about the country. He was kind enough to stay contactable throughout our stay and offer advice when we had questions. If you go with this company, be sure to request the pleasure of Nizam's company - thank you Nizam!
